Choreography

What is Choreography ?

The choreography in Salaam Namaste, Bunty and Babli, Dhoom and Lakshya made these films “rock” all the way to becoming hits. How many of us while listening to music tend to visualize the dance movement and would like to make a career of it ?

Indian choreographer Shiamak Davar had people dancing to his tunes by the end of his first musical show at Durban in August this year. Shiamak’s “Spirit of Dance”, performed at the International Convention Centre was a spectacular symphony of sound, colour and light with the dancers proving the show was all about timing, colourful costumes and fancy footwork.

Choreography promotes the expression of ideas through dance, movement languages and compositional forms on the body and between bodies. A choreographer makes a dance based on music or a synopsis (a writing of what occurs in the dance).

You can hire a performing artist to liven up your next corporate event, or connect with actors, theatre artists and singers and make your production a memorable event.

Theater and dance are two of the world’s major performing arts. And both have a deeper, more therapeutic and psychological impact than was first highlighted in the ancient texts of Bharat Muni’s Natya Shastra and Aristotle’s Poetics. Theater is as old as civilization and is found in all cultures. In fact, the roots of drama are religious. It was a sacred part of community life, and their entire belief system.
